Flow batteries possible thanks to ion-exchange membranes

Nafion™ materials, from Chemours, boost the efficiency of many processes in the chemical industries and open the door to imaginative new products and applications in transportation and energy storage. As Nafion™ knows, finding an efficient and effective solution for energy storage is critical to the global energy infrastructure.

Unlike other rechargeable energy storage technologies, flow batteries are more cost-effective for large energy storage applications. Flow batteries also offer easy maintenance, better thermal management, and longer cycle life.

But flow battery performance depends on the components used to build it. Ion-exchange membranes are critical to making this technology work, but the thickness, durability, and stability of these membranes directly impacts the efficiency and lifetime of the flow battery itself.

Nafion™ membranes offer low ionic resistance, excellent mechanical properties, superior chemical stability, and unmatched durability, making them the ideal choice for energy storage applications. Click below
